The jobs available could be casual and only for a specific period of time.

However, preference will be given to people who can commit to working full time on a rotational basis.

At the beginning of July, health officials were placed at Canada-U.S. border crossings, including airports, to screen people for COVID-19.

The Public Health Agency of Canada has put workers at 36 crossings in B.C., Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.

There are a lot of unique jobs available in Canada that aren't related to COVID-19, like working as a foreign language communications analysts with the Canadian Security Intelligence Service or as a hacker for a company that has a 72-hour interview process.
